Lincoln, NE (AP) - Officials say state parks and recreation areas closed temporarily last fall to deal with deferred maintenance amid budget woes will reopen nearly two weeks earlier than scheduled.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says work crews reassigned from the closed parks completed their projects ahead of schedule. The parks and recreation areas will reopen on April 18 rather than on the expected reopening date of May 1.

The closings were designed to help the commission tackle some of the projects on its list of more than $30 million in deferred maintenance and help the commission comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
